Dallmeier joined the FSOA as a member in 2011. Our initial involvement came after one of our customers recommended the Association to us.
Dallmeier at the same time launched a new Surveillance solution for large areas inclusive of Stadia. Initially the first installations were on mainland Europe within stadia applications, and from our initial success we then started to look for ways to introduce it in into the UK market.
Since 2011 we have become regular conference and exhibition attendees and have also attended regional meetings. We have found members to be open, engaging and friendly and the committee themselves more than helpful and responsive.
The FSOA has provided us with an excellent structure by which to keep in touch and network with members in a semi-formal environment and we have had a great level of serious interest with numerous follow up meetings and live trials at a variety of Clubs.
I am also pleased to report that the very first UK Panomera solution is being installed at Everton FC ready for the start of the new season. This was in effect the result of a meeting at the very first national conference we attended in 2011 with Linsay Veitch and the now retired Ray Foy of Everton.
We are firmly committed to future support of the FSOA and look forward to catching up with members at the next national conference as well as regional meetings.

On the 26th March 2014 Direct Telecom Services were delighted to hear that Sepura PLC had appointed us as their first DMR Partner in the UK. For years the name Sepura has been associated with TETRA radios and ‘blue light’ agencies, but now they have a product for the commercial market too.
The FSOA has provided us with an excellent platform to launch the Sepura brand to its members. Direct Telecom Services and Sepura recently attended the FSOA National Conference in Daventry. We cannot praise the association and their members enough for the warm welcome that we received. The event itself was informative yet fun, and the organisers couldn’t have been more accommodating.
Direct Telecom Services have always been committed to meeting customers’ needs in a fast, but safe and effective manner. We are backed by a dedicated team of professionally trained, certified staff and pride ourselves on exceeding our client expectations. We can see the same code of ethics and professionalism in the team at FSOA, and we highly recommend membership to interested parties.

This Summer Transform Your Matchday Sound(even on a tight budget)
Nasty sounding Public Address broadcasts are painful on your fans’ ears and, if the sound is muddled and dull, it’s unnecessarily damaging for your club’s image.
The Green Guide sees your PA as a vital safety component
The Green Guide states a deficient installation (including the PA system) reduces the (P) factor, potentially down to zero. So transforming your PA from a garbled and unreliable embarrassment into a reliable and effective safety system is not just about saving your fans’ hearing but is also a financial, operations and safety advantage.
For 15 stadia, we’ve remodeled the sound kit & its performance and always within the clubs’ budgets.
Tannoy manufacturers will tell you to ditch all your kit as they can only work on their own: that’s expensive and with no guarantee it will sound any better. That’s not how we work, because we know and use many tannoy and higher grade sound kit makers we are dab-hands at reusing and reconfiguring existing equipment. And, when budgets allow, we integrate new or reconditioned kit.
a once ‘nasally’ sounding or unreliable tannoy reborn as a high-fidelity safety and sparkling entertainment system
Most importantly, we tailor each system to the unique performance needs, compliance duties and budget limits of the club.
● When Chelsea FC built their new West Stand in 2002 we designed and installed a new system;
● At Brentford FC in 2015 we added to an existing system to achieve emergency compliance and transform the music and entertainment
● For Fulham FC in 2017 we added full range thumping music to the pitch. Now we are in the process of upgrading the emergency compliance
ProAudium combine stadium know-how with independence
Unlike a tannoy manufacturer, ProAudium can re-engineer any manufacturer’s sound technology whether it’s new, old, inadequate or poorly deployed,
● The Ultimate Budget Beater – to repair & reconfigure your PA on any budget;
● Compliance Certainty – so you can use your PA system for fire, crowd control and terrorist threat and we’ll ensure it complies with more than just the Green Guide;
● Dependable Life Safety Performance – no more dodgy sound system maintenance that leaves you personally at risk of prosecution or with startling and costly repairs.
ProAudium is owned and run by Nigel Williams & David Read
They’ve worked on 15 stadia and grounds including Leicester Tigers RFC, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Oxford United FC, and High Wycombe FC. They
believe passionately that stadium management can improve safety, add more excitement and earn an income by making better use of their match day
sound systems. And do this whatever the budget and without employing expensive consultants.
Whilst ProAudium is not a contractor they will work with your existing fire, security or electrical contractor to project manage and deliver your transformed system. Then they maintain it, minimising your running costs. They will also guide you on compliance. Where you don’t have a suitable contractor, ProAudium have worked with some tip-top stadium contractors.

Nearly 2,000 football-related arrests were made in the 2016-17 season, the second year to show an
increase, according to the Home Office. The most common arrests being for public disorder and
alcohol offences. ln addition, the number of banning orders issued has increase d by 12%.
ln the past, some football clubs have installed full size detention cells at grounds to hold those
detained for disorder. Many of these are outdated and unsafe. However, as time has moved on police
forces throughout the UK, are using new style short term holding cells for the detention of subjects to
be held safely, while completing paperwork.
So, what is the solution for football clubs? Well, it’s surprisingly Easy!
The answer for football is the Athelnev Group Safer Detention Unit (SDU)
A totally new innovative, easily scalable solution designed by security experts, the Safe Detention Unit
(SDU), is a flat pack version of a short term holding cell, to safely and securely hold individuals detained
for crime or breaches of the ground rules until an outcome decision is made or they handed over to
That means the SDU can address every concern a Football Club might have:
removing any added risk of conflict after a detention has been made
faster and safer processing of subjects – with decisions made safely on site
enabling a calmer and more methodical decision-making process
releasing security staff back on core duties almost immediately
greater processing efficiency – offers the potential for reduced head count and cost savings
keeping staff safer, happier and increasing staff retention
potential for onsite police processing reduces prisoner transport costs
deterrent to bad behaviour – once spectators know that a club has installed this facility
enabling a firmer policy on bad behaviour and disorder in your stadium
The SDU is the low cost modern design compliant with all health and safety requirements.
And its money well spent – the ROI for an SDU could be as Iittle as 3 to 5 months!
